Clemson battles Presbyterian Saturday at 3:30 in Death Valley. Each week TheClemsonInsider.com will take a unique look at the game.
TheClemsonInsider.com brings you this week’s edition of Over or Under.
1. Tigers Rush for 100 Yards
OVER: Andre Ellington and Jamie Harper have waited a long time for this night to come. For the first time in their careers the spotlight will be on them when the Tigers battle Auburn Saturday night.
Clemson will try to run the ball to help with time of possession. Andre and Jamie should get at least 100 yards as they play four quarters for the first time all year.
2. Cam Newton Rushes for 100 Yards
UNDER: Auburn starting quarterback Cam Newton has a good arm, but he won’t beat the Tigers with his arm. He comes in averaging 120 yards on the ground. Cam will provide a major challenge for the Tiger’s defense.
Look for Newton to get some yardage on the ground as he scrambles from pressure, but don’t expect him to get 100 yards. If he does it will be a long night for the Tigers.
3. Tigers Score 20 Points
OVER: Expect Clemson to need to score at least score 20 points to come home with the victory. Auburn will put some points on the board so Kyle Parker and the offense will need to be ready to outscore Auburn.
4. Parker Throws Two Touchdown Passes
PUSH: Kyle Parker enjoys the spotlight and Saturday night the two-sport star will have his chance to showcase his skills on the football field. Auburn already holds a special place in Kyle’s memories and Saturday night he will add to those memories.
Expect Kyle to show that he is in midseason form. Dwayne Allen will get plenty of looks and should find the endzone again. The inexperienced receivers have played better than many thought the first two games. Auburn’s defense showed some vulnerability against the pass last Thursday against Mississippi State. Kyle is much better than the QB’s at Mississippi State so expect him to do some damage through the air.
